Not sure about BD but with a phenom x6, if u disable a core or 2 in the bios the vdroop is a lot less.

Vdroop is the same with the 8120 as it was with the 965BE. And for the second question: The F5 or F6c if it is the 1.0 or 1.1 revision. F6f is not good, methinks. FB bios if it is a 1.2 rev 990FXA-UD3.

Interesting, I will take another look at that although I have moved the DIMMS once already. Nothing else seems to work within the Bios, but these 1866 DIMMS do run stable at 1333!smile.gif

I miss having a system that booted up perfectly every time. frown.gif My PC loved the Vengeance 1600 I had in there at 9-9-9-24, but this XMS3 2000 at 9-10-9-27, not so much...

F5 wont work with FX chips very well, You need F6C
I posted a link in this thread a while ago to it.

But once I put the computer into s3 and resume it the AMD APM starts working again and throttles cores. I have to reboot or go into hibernation for it to become disabled again. Thanks for the help!

You can also do the AOD trick to re-disable it.

My current timings are:

1T, 9-10-9-26, (6, 37, 6) (@ 1866) and my PC is running like a dream? No failed boots, no ticking sounds, very fast boots from post to desktop, have restarted have a dozen times and I'm booting perfectly.

FSB is @ stock speeds (200). I think I just finally found a combination of settings that work well. If anyone has any input on how I can further improve these settings, that would be much appreciated. Glad my system is stable again.

Probably not, unless he bought this board months ago. Anything purchased within the past 2 or 3 months will be at least revision 1.1 and will definitely come with a bios that supports the chip?

On the gigabyte website, it lists when each version of bios was released, and if I remember right, F4 came out in September. Now that was for my board, (the UD3) so find out when F4 came out for the UD5, and if it was also F4 for that board that allowed use of the FX chip, I think that is the version that started to support these chips. Anyway, if all of the components work fine in your rig, perhaps one of his parts is faulty and needs to be RMAed? Maybe he static shocked the board when he first got it because he's a noob? Hope that ain't the case though!
